Mumbai, September 02:

Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundalhas told investigators that the Karachi control room, from where handlers guided 26/11 terrorists, was set up three days before the attack and was equipped with various gadgets, including laptops and satellite phones.

The control room, officers said, was established on the orders of Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed in the office of one Abu Yakoob in the locality of Quaidabad between Malir Cantonment and Jinnah International Airport. On November 23, 2008, Saeed's associates—Zarar Shah and one Shahid alias Nadeem from Muzaffarabad—took over the office. Nadeem brought with him four laptops, two TV sets with two dish antennas, LAN wires and satellite phones.

"Shah, Nadeem and Jundal installed Voice Over Internet Protocol software on the laptops and spent a while fixing the system and checking the web connection," said an officer who interrogated Jundal.

At some point during the day, Jundal told officers, he "went to get a shave". When he returned to the control room, Jundal found a handler named Abu Kahafa demonstrating the workings of a GPS system to the 10 terrorists. After that, the terrorists left to board Al Hussaini boat, which was to be piloted by one Dara. Jundal said six handlers went to see off the terrorists, though he did not accompany them. Officers say they have suspicions about the last claim.

On November 26, Jundal told interrogators, Shah, Nadeem and Kahafa fasted and regularly inspected the gadgets. "During the day, two Pakistani army officers—Major Sameer Ali and Sajid Mir—came to the control room, checked up on everybody and left," said the police officer. Nadeem also left at some point. "Around 7pm, Lashkar commander Zaki-Ur-Rahman Lakhvi arrived with Abu Alkama and Abu Wassi, broke their fast and offered namaz. They took dinner at 8pm and switched on the TV," said the officer.

In the end, the officer said, the handlers in the control room were Jundal, Kahafa, Lakhvi, Wassi, Shah and a major general. "Jundal instructed terrorists Abu Babar Imran and Nasir Abu Umar, who attacked Nariman House in Colaba." added the officer. "Hafiz Saeed was present at sermons but not during the attack."
